CAA: Community-Wide Tikkun Leil Shavuot
May 25 @ 8:00 pm - May 26 @ 6:30 amFree
Join us Thursday night, May 25th continuing all night through Friday morning for study, sustenance, and camaraderie as we celebrate Shavuot, The Festival of Weeks, and anticipate receiving Torah together at Mount Sinai.
This year, our theme is “Torah on One Foot: Balancing while Staying Grounded.” If rabbinic stories came to life and Hillel and Shammai were here, would we require there to be only one winner? How might we stay in the space of both-and, instead of either-or, perhaps finding the delicate balance like a fiddler on the roof? Where do we see ourselves in the narrative of tradition?
We look forward to exploring these ideas through a variety of modalities with teachers from throughout Austin.
The evening begins at 8:00 PM with a general welcome and community panel. Learning will take place, in person, at Congregation Agudas Achim.
Lots of coffee, lots of food, and lots of fun! We can’t wait!
Come early. Stay late. Wear comfortable clothes.
